One of the side effects of periodontal disease is an increase in the amount of oral bacteria. These high bacteria levels can make it more difficult for your mouth to heal from gum disease. Additionally, these bacteria can spread throughout the body, increasing one’s risk for problems like diabetic complications, heart disease, respiratory infection, pregnancy complications, and more. One way we reduce these bacteria levels and help you heal is through antibiotic treatment.
An antibiotic gum disease treatment is often completed with a scaling and root planing procedure. After removing tartar and plaque from the roots of your teeth, we will place medication in the periodontal pockets between your gum tissue and teeth. This medication will slowly release antibiotic directly to your gum tissue. We may also recommend taking an oral antibiotic.
